    Provenge treatment and what side effects or what good did it do?

    I finished my Provenge treatment in Mid-May and my energy level has slowly gone down in the following months. I am wondering how others are fairing with this treatment? Any noticeable side effects or good results that have been noted by you or your oncologist? I have been on Zytiga since mid-December 2011. My PSA is slowly declining over the past 6 months from a high of 111 to last test at 75. Also have a Lupron shot every three months and a Zometa infusion every 4 weeks.

      Hi Michael, I just saw this question. You may want to check back in with @tspoon. I believe her husband was going to go on it. In the meantime, I'll post a question about this on Facebook for you.
